[-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 2010 bytes --]

I am attempting again to write a latex document with org-mode. The
org-mode part is no problem, but the latex part is awkward. This is
the first few line of my org-mode document -

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+TITLE:     The history of custard pies.
#+AUTHOR:    Sharon Kimble
#+EMAIL:     boudiccas@skimble.plus.com
#+DATE:      01-04-2015
#+LATEX:     \usepackage{~/texmf/tex/latex/commonstuff/mysty}
# #+Latex_Class: mysty
#+DESCRIPTION:
#+KEYWORDS:
#+LANGUAGE:  en

* Blargh
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The latex file "mysty" is actually "mysty.sty" and contains all the
latex files that I want to use, but it doesn't appear to be loading,
and I can't see why? My idea of having *all* the latex packages in
one file is so that I hope to be able to have it in its own
directory and then symlink it to each projects main org-mode file so
that I would have a known working setup, right from the start!

The first few lines of "mysty.sty" are

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
\NeedsTeXFormat{LaTeX2e}
\ProvidesClass{mysty}[31-03-2015]

\RequirePackage[l2tabu,orthodox]{nag}
\RequirePackage{fixltx2e}
\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}
% \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book}
% \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report} 
% \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{memoir} NO
% \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{scrbook}
%%\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{scrreprt}
\usepackage{morewrites}
\usepackage{tocloft}
\usepackage[stretch=10]{microtype}
\setlength\parindent{0pt} % sets indent to zero
\setlength{\parskip}{5pt} % changes vertical space between paragraphs
\setcounter{tocdepth}{1}
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Any ideas please?

Thanks
Sharon.

LATEX_CLASS matches an entry in `org-latex-classes', not a .sty file.

Use #+latex_header.

1. Then, why not put your customizations in a custom LaTeX class (based
on an existing one)?  Currently, you have a package/class mix (see
below).  See clsguide.pdf in your TeX distro for details about how to do
it (see e.g. section "Example: a newsletter class")

2. And no need to symlink it anywhere.  If you have it in e.g.
~/texmf/tex/latex/mystuff/myclass.cls, run mktexlsr (assuming you are on
TeXlive) and then just \usepackage{mypackage} or
\documentclass{myclass}.  It is only necessary to run mktexlsr again in
case of a change in the directory under ~/texmf, so e.g. new files or
filename changes, but not just updating the file itself.

For .sty, this ^^ should be \ProvidesPackage.  Again, see clsguide.pdf.

Probably a good idea.

This should be \LoadClass (or similar, like \LoadClassWithOptions) in
a class file.

Tsk, tsk.  What about \usepackage{parskip}?

And possibly omit the full path as LaTeX should be able to find
mysty.sty if located within the ~/texmf directory. (untested)

As I wrote - yes, provided you update the filename database
(e.g. launching mktexlsr from the command line).  (Because of speed, TeX
does not search the directory tree each time it looks for a package or
something, but uses a database in a familiar, "ls -R" format.)

Best,

This is true, but with one exception: the user texmf tree. So
everything below ~/texmf (or ~/Library/texmf on Mac OS X) should work
without running mktexlsr (on a default TeXLive installation).
